My Mutt Rooster his father is a Millie and his mother is a Black Silkie. He has some of each in him for sure. Five toes and Black skin like his Mother and giant feathered feet and vulture hawks like his dad

You sure his mother is a Silkie though? He's got a single comb, pale skin, no crest, and a more refined type body. Silkies, even crosses, wouldn't let those traits pass on.

Well you can never really tell I guess but I only have two black hens and they are Silkies. Why else would he have black skin and 5 toes? Here are the parents I think anyway.

Same here! I have seen a lot of very fun-colored mutts on here, or even ones with crazy fun features.

I believe that's a Silkie cross. She looks like someone crossed something with Silkie, then took the offspring and bred them to each other to get the recessive Silkied feathering back, but chose a silkie-feathered offspring with the other breed's traits, such as skin color, comb type, and body type. Purebred Silkies have crests, and have nearly blackened purple-hued combs; females have practically no comb, and its of a different shape.


But, anyway, both mom and dad are just as cute as the son.
